Friendly played Wednesday 21st April.

Despite having 2 15 year old girls playing, being at least 2 years younger than their opponents and playing more than half of the game with 10 girls because of illness and holidays, Wyrley were more than a match for the team that is top of the Staffordshire County Womens League.

Wyrley played some exceptional football out of defence at times and despite chances falling to Hayley Turner, Jemma Clews and Rachel Hall, they fell 2 behind to Chasetown’s quality centre forward.
Beth Crook had another fine game, ably supported by the hard working Laura Cumberledge. Turner burst into the box and was upended – penalty! Cath Davis confidently stroked the ball into the top corner. Half – time 1 – 2.
Wyrley continued to play all the passing football and had to play the majority of the second half with 10 players due to injuries but still dominated. Turner took advantage of the Chasetown defence going to sleep when a linesman flag went up for offside, when she ran through from an onside position to side foot home.
Leah Fanning, Amy Marshall and Emily Downes coped well with the Chasetown forwards, although only one caused real problems. Nia Jay had to come out quickly to smother on sporadic break aways.
Davis took advantage of a loose ball to chip the keeper from 20 yards only for the same Chasetown centre forward to score from a fine angle.
Turner scored her second to restore the Wyrley advantage before Chasetown equalised through – yes you’ve got it, the same Chasetown player.

Wyrley had the opportunity to win the game in the last minute, when Turner hit the bar as the keeper came out.

Girls – 2 friendlies in the last 2 weeks against the top 2 teams in the County Open Age League – outplaying both, winning one and drawing the other – despite you only being 15, 16 and 17 years old!

Well done – the future’s bright for Wyrley!

Out thanks go to Trevor and his ladies for agreeing to play us – good luck for the remainder of the season.
